This workshop is part of Friends of Tamalpa ArtCorps, a series of workshops that feature very special guests and whose proceeds benefit ArtCorps, Tamalpa's social engagement program.

What if you had an idea that you wanted to explore in making a dance or a performance piece? What if you had a map to guide you along the way and bring your imagination to life?

If you experience the arts as a non-linear process and want to explore ways to shape your creativity, join us for an introduction to scoring and performance. This workshop draws from Anna and Lawrence Halprin’s prolific body of work, including the Life-Art Process and the RSVP Cycles. Participants will be introduced to the basics of scoring and performance-making: generating resources, themes, intentions, and activities. In this workshop participants will be grounded in somatic practice and movement-based expressive arts. Writing and drawing are integrated in this approach. Participants will design and perform their scores and take home resources for further discovery and personal use.

This workshop is designed for everyone. No previous experience in dance/art needed.

Joy has trained extensively and performed with Anna Halprin in numerous events including “Seasons/Awaken,” “Spirit of Place,” and the seminal “Parades and Changes.” Joy founded the Wayfinders Performance Group and produced and directed “Homing Devices,” a full-length dance-theatre performance with international performers exploring stories of home. She co-directed “Between Shadow and Light,” a site-specific performance that collaborated with musicians and artists from the Bay Area. Joy is Artistic Director of “Swimming the Waters,” which explores various sites in San Francisco to encourage awareness of our environmental landscapes. She appears as lead artist in Daria Martin’s film “Minotaur” and has performed in “Without Us” by Inkboat.
